The primary celebration of books and reading for children and schools in the UK is World Book Day.
World Book Day is celebrated on the first Thursday of March each year and 14 million book tokens are distributed through schools which children can spend on specially produced World Book Day books - or any book they want.
World Book Night is aimed at engaging adults and teenagers who don't regularly read in doing so. Each year some of the titles on our list will be appropriate for readers 14 years and older. Anyone over the age of 16 can apply to be a giver.
Later in the year we'll be announcing the books featured for World Book Night 2014 and how you and your school can take part. Please sign up to our mailing list here to learn more.
